FILM AT ELEVEN
The first quarterly release of the 2015 Dave’s Picks subscription series will be the complete soundboard recording of 2/24/74 at Winterland. I played this selection from my old vault DAT, just to give you a taste of the music; obviously the mastered version will be a great improvement in audio quality! You can sign up for your 2015 subscription now. Subscribers also get a bonus disc of previously-unreleased material.
The 10/25/69 “Lovelight” with Stephen Stills is included here by request of a listener. Stills and his pals David Crosby and Graham Nash were good friends with the Grateful Dead. Stills played on Mickey Hart’s 1972 album Rolling Thunder; in addition to this guest shot at Winterland, Stills sat in with the GD in December 1969 (Los Angeles) and April 1983 (East Rutherford NJ).
“Film at Eleven is from a brand-new studio CD by the David Nelson Band, and I am loving it! You’ll hear more from this wonderful CD in the weeks to come. If that name is unfamiliar to you, David Nelson is one of Jerry Garcia’s oldest musical running buddies. They played folk and bluegrass together, took acid for the first time together, and played together in the New Riders of the Purple Sage and the Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band. The Nelson Band doesn’t tour very often, sorry to say, but they jam like mofos. Check ‘em out.
